driveways under its control, and in all cases where any boulevard, drive-

of park commissioners for public purposes; and in case any such park, 
boulevard, driveway or parkway, extension or connection as provided in

Titanic Disaster. 

(Senate Joint Resolutiois No. 3.) 

Whereas, On Sunday evening, April 14, A. D. 1912, the great liner 
"Titanic," on her maiden voyage to our shores, struck an ice floe in the 
Atlantic ocean, and went to an untimely doom, carrying with her upwards 
of sixteen hundred souls, who in the darkness of the night, perished in the 
icy waters of the shoreless deep; and 

Whereas, In this most terrible of all marine disasters, men of world- 
wide fame, and learning, rather than assert an assumed right to live, — men 
with a courage that never faltered, and a splendid gallantry that has en- 
haloed their lives with a glory that shall never die, — gave place to those 
less fortunate in life's great struggle, and while the women and children and 
a handful of other men, made a hazardous escape stood and gazed upon 
"the sad and solemn sea," and then passed from sight, as the ship's musicians 
played a hymn to their Maker, "Nearer My God to Thee;" and 

Whereas, Such deeds as these, v.^hile in themselves sad and terrible, yet, 
furnish an endless cause to rejoice in a glorious heritage that makes the 
Anglo-Saxon race supreme; and 

Whereas, Many hearts are sad and many lives are lonely, because the 
handiwork of riian fell a prey to Nature's hidden perils; therefore, be it 

Resolved, by the Senate of the State of Illinois, the House of Representa- 
tives concurring therein. That we, deeply deploring this terrible catastrophe 
that has caused untimely deaths to so many brave people, unite with their 
loved ones and their friends, wherever they may be, in the sadness of their 
bereavement; and, further 

Resolved, That while our hearts are sad, and we are called upon, "to mourn 
with those that mourn," and because of the noble self-sacrifice of those who 
chose to die, — we still rejoice that the nobility of the race has been evi- 
denced to the world, and a worthy example set for our guidance by those 
who now slumber in the sea depths, that we who live, may be stronger, 
cleaner and better men; further 

Resolved, That for the alleviation of the suffering, distressed and needy, 
victims of the catastrophy, the Governor is hereby requested to make a suit- 
able and consistent donation of such sunf as may be available from any con- 
tingent fund now in existence. 

Adopted by the Senate April 23, 1912.

Control of Waterways of Lower Mississippi Vaixey. 
(Senate Joint Resolution No. 5.) 

Whereas, The people of the lower Mississippi valley have again this year 
been great sufferers from the overflow of the Mississippi river, entailing 
immense losses in life and property and, in many instances, the destruction 
of the crop prospects of the year; and, 

Whereas, The government of the United States and of the individual 
states along the lower Mississippi and numerous levee districts contiguous 
to its banks have, in the aggregate, expended millions upon millions of dol- 
lars within the past forty years in the hope of preventing overflows and 
reclaiming the rich lands of that important region; and. 

Whereas, This year, and frequently in the past, new high-water marks 
have been successively made and new areas inundated, thus continuing the 
losses and disappointing the hopes of the people; and. 

Whereas, The lower Mississippi is the natural outlet to the sea for the 
waters of nearly half the area cf the entire country, the vast plain lying 
between the Allegheny mountains on the east and the Rocky mountains on 
the west, all the northern portion of which, through tile and farm drains 
and the reclamation of swamps, is steadily pouring an increased volume of 
water into the great central stream; and, 

Whereas, Justice requires that the lower Mississippi valley states should 
not be burdened with the task of providing outlet for all the water of the 
more northern portion; and. 

Whereas, The time is at hand when the millions of people in this country 
will greatly need the vast increase of products of which the overflow and 
swamp lands of the lower valley is capable, when once reclaimed and made 
secure against floods; therefore, be it 

Resolved, by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring herein, 
That it is the sense of the Legislature of the State of Illinois, that the 
control of the waterways of the lower Mississippi valley is a national prob- 
lem and should be dealt with by the general government on plans broad 
and comprehensive enough to prevent overflows, reclaim the waste areas 
and make them available for the production of food for the millions of 
people they are capable of supporting; 

Resolved, That the Secretary of State is directed to send copies of this 
resolution to the Senators and Representatives from Illinois in the Congress 
of the United States, and they are hereby urged to use their best efforts to 
secure action by Congress in accord with the spirit, intent and purpose 
herein expressed. 

Adopted by the Senate June 4, 1912. 

Concurred in by the House June 5, 1912.

Whereas, It has come to the knowledge of the people of the State of Illi-
